  • If it's what she does then it's right for her. Every baby, premie or not, has different needs and habits.

  • Enjoy it. Now that you've published the schedule, she'll change it! **grin**

    It's fine. No worries.

  • Your VERY blessed to have a child that sleeps that well. We should ALL be so lucky. It's normal dear. For your baby anyways. As long as the rest of her deelopment is in the normal range rolling over, holding her head up, dont worry. Things will change soon wnough one the baby is mobile.
